Information

The first thing we have to tell you is that at this stage comes a litmus test: physical endurance. This stage is the longest of the eight, as from Camariñas to Muxía there are almost 33 kilometres, although it is not the most complicated in terms of relief, which is actually quite flat.

Moreover, as it happens at the end of stage 2 and the beginning of stage 3, this one goes into the Ría de Camariñas up to its beginning, in the estuary of the Río Grande de A Ponte do Porto, turning again to the West towards the Ocean, where it awaits us. Muxía with its Sanctuary of the Virgin of La Barca, her sacred stones and, of course, the lighthouse of Muxía.

We leave Camariñas behind us following the AC-432 road, which we will leave to go down to Area da Vila beach towards the coast of Muxía. Here we must be very observant to continue the path, which seems to have no continuation, but at the opposite end of the beach we will find a path of great but short slope, with a rope that will help us to climb it. We continue along the Lingunde Beach to access a beautiful wooded path that runs laterally along the Ensenada de la Basa.

At the end of this one, a small stretch of the previous road leads us to a restaurant.

We continue walking on the opposite side of the inlet and we reach the “Areiña Branca Beach”, followed by the “Rego dos Coirós Beach”, where we will find a picnic area with a fountain and a shower. It is followed by Ariño Beach. The path will take us back to the road and we will find another restaurant. We continue along an asphalted rural track parallel to the road, which we will take again arriving at the Village of A Ponte do Porto we will cross the bridge over the Rio Grande.

In this villa we will find different services. We continue along the river walk that will take us to the Port of Cereixo, a small village with beautiful traditional granite constructions, such as the magnificent Cereixo Towers, the tide mills and the Church of Santiago de Cereixo.
